Red Monkey: Work That Turkey @ Monarch Theatre
Pete "SuperMix" Salaz is planning to lay out an impressive spread for his nearest and dearest on Thanksgiving, although its gonna be a feast that's more audio than edible. The godfather of local house music has been rocking record decks for more than two decades, and he and a slew of special guests will dish out a sumptuous T-Day buffet of beats and four-on-the-floor treats during his annual RedMonkey: Work That Turkey dance party on Thursday, November 28, at Monarch Theatre, 122 East Washington Street. It's the sixth time that Salaz has thrown the Thanksgiving night event, which gives house-heads the chance to hit the dance floor and work off the calories they ingested hours earlier. And to get heads bobbing and rumps bumping at the Monarch, he's bringing in fellow house veteran Jask Thaisoul to spin deep rhythms basted with jazzy, soulful, and disco grooves. The nine-piece House Music All-Stars band and Ms. Mason also are scheduled to perform during the party, which goes until 3 a.m. Doors open at 9 p.m. Admission is $10.
